SoftScan is a robust, stand-alone software system that reads any DWG, DXF or 3D-Cad/SmartCad file directly, and creates a file that can be imported into:
By simply selecting your drawings and clicking the scan button, the rest is automatic, and no 3rd party CAD system or software is required. SoftScan also produces a variety of reports based on the BOM including a Mill Order Report, Cutting List, Material Summary Report, Bolt Summary and Nesting Report.
The tedious task of typing Bills of Material into these software packages is now a thing of the past.
